Homo-hating homo Dave Dreier hires Tony Blair's son


Tony Blair’s son will be working for outed wingnut Congressman Dave Dreier (Repug-CA)

The Congressman’s made a new intern hire, and one has to wonder whether Tony Blair is aware that Dave Dreier is one of Washington’s notorious closet cases with an anti-gay voting record. BlogActive is raising a ruckus on this one, with “Save Tony Blair’s son from the clutch of America’s closets.” The new report about the hire, at 365gay.com:

Euan Blair beat out about 100,000 hopefuls for a slot as an intern on the Hill. The graduate of Bristol University will work for Congressman David Dreier (R-Calif.). A longtime opponent of LGBT civil rights legislation and a supporter of a constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage, Dreier was outed by gay rights activist Michael Rogers on his site BlogActive last year – part of a campaign to expose Republicans who were secretly gay but voted to deny gays and lesbians civil rights.

Dreier who has refused to comment on the reports allegedly lives with his male chief of staff. Last year Dreier was named a “True Blue” advocate by the Family Research Council – the preeminent anti-gay lobby organization.

In 1996 Dreier voted for the Defense of Marriage Act which bans the federal government from recognizing same-sex couples. The legislation passed and was signed into law by then President Bill Clinton. In 1999 he voted to ban gay adoptions in the District of Columbia. That bill was narrowly defeated.

It’s open season on Dreier again, who benefited from what was a complete media blackout on his outing, which included an expose in Hustler as well as Mike Rogers’ work. From BlogActive:

As I was saying about a year ago, this is a long term investment project. And today, we hit paydirt. All over the United Kingdom in the major papers, there’s GOP Representative David Dreier being exposed for the gay homophobe he is.

Most fun of all is the see Freepers (for those of you who don’t know what a Freeper is, think one part Ann Coulter and one part Lou Sheldon and you’re pretty much there) battling out whether or not David Drier is gay or not….a RINO (Republican in name only — as if people were dying to lie their way into the party)….and more. (Warning: Right wing site, homophobic posts are allwed there — and there are plenty of them.
